The Space in Between: Marina Abramovic in Brazil
(BRA, 2016, 86 min.) Marco Del Fiol

Skype Interview with director Marco Del Fiol
Discussant: Dot Tuer, Visual Arts, OCAD University

Marina Abramovic travels through Brazil, in search of personal healing and artistic inspiration, experiencing sacred rituals and revealing, for the first time, her creative process. The route is comprised of poignant encounters with healers and sages from the Brazilian countryside, exploring the limits between art, immateriality and consciousness. This external trip triggers in Marina a profound introspective journey through memories, pains and past experiences.

  Marco Del Fiol works with documentaries on art since 1999. He directed four seasons of the series Videobrasil on TV, recording artists such as Olafur Eliasson and Isaac Julien. His most recent work is the documentary “The Space in Between - Marina Abramovic and Brazil." The film was in theatres in Brazil for over five months and was selected for more than 20 international festivals, including SxSW, Moscow International Film Festival and BFI London Film Festival.
